Turkey Hunters in Emanuel County have some new acreage to target this year thanks to more than 6,000 new acres available at Ohoopee Dunes WMA, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD).

This property, along with the statewide turkey season, opens to turkey hunters on Sat. March 24, and is open through the end of the season on May 15.

Portions of this new property border the Little Ohoopee River, and includes a combination of hardwood drains, upland pines, and sandhill pinelands, making good turkey hunting opportunities. Like other available state WMAs, it will have open access roads and walk-in access trails scattered throughout the property.
